The 2016 Ram 1500 features a unique coil spring rear suspension to give it the smoothest ride when unloaded, while still having the capability to tow your trailer like a champ when equipped with the stout Hemi gasoline V8 or torquey turbodiesel V6 engine. If you’re not planning to tow heavy loads, the V6 is a great engine that can save you money.
Standard safety equipment on the 2016 Ram 1500 includes four-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability control, hill-start assist, trailer-sway control, front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. A fully integrated trailer-brake controller is available, and you can also get a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors.
The 2016 Ram 1500's base engine is a 3.6-liter gasoline V6 that generates 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque.

A 5.7 liter V8 with 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque is standard on the Sport, Laramie Longhorn and Limited trims. It available as an option on all other Rams except the HFE.
An EcoDiesel turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 rated at 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque is optional on all but the Express, Sport and Rebel.
